Your Virtual Tour with a local

Meet Igor who was born and raised in Normandy. His grandparents lived under German occupation and were both part of the French resistance. Therefore he has a very strong connection with his region.

Studying history at the prestigious Sorbonne University in Paris and afterward becoming an official tour guide of the region, Igor will take you through these regions as only a local can. He will also explain the history of the Vikings in the area that nobody else talks about! Come join us!
 

Normandy and D-Day

What is D-Day? On this tour, you’ll learn the many details of the day that became a turning point in WWII. D-Day took place on June 6, 1944, when Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy. D-Day began what we now know as the Battle of Normandy, which lasted for three months. Now, we look back at D-Day and consider it the beginning of the end of World War II.

On D-Day, the Allied troops stormed five different beaches. Out of these, Omaha Beach was the largest. Now a gorgeous seascape that’s difficult to think ever involved militant activity, this beach serves as a reminder of the Allied troops’ turning point in WWII.

We will also speak about the American Cemetery which serves as the final resting place for many American soldiers who lost their lives in combat. Covering over 170 acres of land, this burial site honors more than 9,000 American soldiers.

Mont-Saint-Michel

Beginning in the 11th century, Benedictine monks began building an abbey dedicated to the archangel Michael. What started off as just a church, turned into a small city that is a testament to Medieval Christianity's ardent beliefs and architecture.

The entire area was built upon a rocky islet that, depending on the tides, can be completely surrounded by water making it an island. During low tide, pilgrims have been able to access it throughout the centuries and in high tide served as a perfect barrier to protect the small area. Come and learn about one of the most unique locations dedicated to Christianity from the Middle Ages.
